Best Practices for Securing and Empowering a Mobile Workforce
Increasing demand from today’s employees for a flexible experience that affords them the option to use the mobile technology of their choosing has disrupted traditional approaches to IT management and security. As a first response, it’s not uncommon for companies to launch bring-your-own-device (BYOD) initiatives. However, these programs become more difficult to scale the more they include a larger percentage of the workforce, more corporate apps, and increased access to enterprise data and resources. It’s clear that BYOD is here to stay, and the expansion of use cases for mobile are continuing to bolster business growth. However, the role of enterprise IT must advance alongside these new trends to enable a more secure mobile workforce that is well equipped to respond to customer needs on their own terms.
Join guest speaker, Forrester Senior Analyst Chris Sherman, and IBM MaaS360 portfolio marketing leader, Jonathan Dale, as they share best practices for securing and empowering your mobile workforce.
You will learn:
- How location, access to sensitive data, and job function affect BYOD eligibility and policy
- The risk levels associated with employee segments and device posture
- How to support employee flexibility by decoupling security from the device
